10. MN Break the Bonds petition and MN SBI Meeting

Wednesday, March 4, 10 a.m.  SBI Building, 60 Empire Drive, St. Paul.

This is a very critical moment in the campaign to divest the state of MN
from its holdings in Israel bonds. MN Break the Bonds, the statewide
divestment campaign targeting MN's investments in Israel bonds, has been
pushing the State Board of Investments to divest from its $10+ million
holdings in Israel bonds. What is critical is that these bonds mature at
the end of June, which means the state will receive the amount it invested
back, and have to decide where to reinvest these funds.  We are putting all
of our efforts into pushing the State Board of Investments to not reinvest
in Israel bonds. This is a critical point because if we can get them to not
reinvest, then the state will not at all hold any direct investments in
Israel - which is a huge victory for the global movement for boycott,
divestment, and sanctions as called for by Palestinian civil society. FFI:
